Hello UCA Learning Coaches and Students!
Can you believe we are a month into our school year? And what a month it has been. Our Live Lesson attendance is at a record high and teachers are sharing the great discussions and interactions with students and between students. It is wonderful
to see the number of students accessing the recorded Live Lessons and interacting that way as well.
I wanted to give you a heads up on a most important date: OCTOBER 2nd, or COUNT DAY!
October 2nd is a required day of school attendance. This is the date that the State of Utah has chosen to record the attendance of enrolled UCA students. We must have every enrolled student log on and complete lessons. Please mark this day on your calendars as we will be contacting any students who have not logged on with this reminder. We find it easiest for families to have their student log on in the morning and complete lessons so they do not get multiple messages from staff with the reminder.
Lastly, we hope you have noticed the roll out of Field Trips that is happening school wide. We had a great trip to STEM FEST for the 5th thru 12th graders this week, and there are plans for Elementary age field trips in the weeks ahead. Please note that we have a map where we can see our student population. It is our plan to include locations across the state for Field Trips so no one feels left out. If you have an idea for a Field Trip, pls send them in.
We always appreciate hearing from our families.
Have a great week.
Erin Taylor, UCA School Principal
Open Volunteer Position – UCA Board of Directors
On behalf of UCA Board Chair, Ms. Kinney, please see the message below.
I am excited to share an opportunity with the school community. As dedicated volunteers serving the mission of the school and ensuring responsible governance, Board members are a vital part of the fabric of the school.
Currently, the Board is looking to increase its membership by adding one (1) parent/guardian representative! Interested individuals are encouraged to review the Board member role and responsibilities, as outlined in the attached flyer, and reach out to Erin Taylor, School Leader, through WebMail with your resume. Attending regularly scheduled meetings is a condition of membership.
The Board will begin reviewing applications beginning October 1, 2023.
